Let Them Eat Cake Centerpiece

By: Susie Coelho for Krylon

Want a centerpiece that looks good enough to eat? How about a gift idea that is bound to leave a sweet impression? Stacking tins to look like a cake adds whimsy and style. The options are endless but here is an easy way to create a lasting effect and this project from Krylon is sure to stack up!

Cake inspired Centerpiece


  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer - White (#51315)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Bright White (#53517)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Gum Drop (#51513)
  • Krylon Matte Finish - Clear (#1311)
  • 1 extra large size round tin
  • 1 large size round tin
  • 1 med. size round tin
  • 1 small size round tin
  • 1 extra small size round tin
  • Fresh or faux hydrangeas or other flowers that align with your color palette
  • Blue painters tape
  • Newspaper


  1. Start by spraying all the tins with Krylon Primer. It the tins already have a design on them that you are trying to cover, you may need to spray a couple layers of primer. Allow paint to dry between layers.
  2. Once all tins are evenly coated and dry, spray all the tins with the Krylon Satin Bright White. Wait for the paint to completely dry.
  3. Take the extra large, medium and extra small tins and tape evenly spaced vertical lines all around the side of each tin.
  4. Cover the top and bottom of each tin used in the previous step with either tape or newspaper and spray Krylon Gum Drop around the side of each tin.
  5. After the paint dries, carefully remove the tape from the sides.
  6. Finish off with a protective coat of Krylon Matte Finish.
  7. Decorate with fresh or faux hydrangeas or other flowers that align with your color palette.
  8. Display with cake accessories on a table or even on a cake plate or cake pedestal.
